Default Moving Reference Frame

I try to represent mixing in a oval reactor, so I used the MRF for the fluide with a rotational speed of 5rad/s (first simulation). and a moving wall with rotational speed 0rad/s in the absolute reference frame. the probleme that when I used the K-e model (the flow is turbulente). I introduce a turbulente intensity and length scale on the inlet and outlet but no condition at the agitator. fluent give message "turbulent viscosity limited to viscosity ratio of 1.000000e+005 in 4194 cells" thanks in advance for the answer

the problem u have is that turbulent viscosity in 4194 cells is exceeding the limit,

if the number of cells ( i.e 4194 ) in which turbulent viscosity limited to viscosity ratio of 1.000000e+005, decreases as the solution progresses then u can carry on,

if it goes on increasing, try to increase the viscosity ratio limit,

thanks Rams for your help. in fact, increasing viscosity ratio is decreasing turbulente dissipation rate or increasing turbulente kinetic energy for a fixed velocity inlet. can I increase vicosity ratio limit directly?

before going for changing increasing viscosity ratio, see whether the viscosity ratio limited in number of cells is decresing or not, if so then u need not increase the limit.

and incresing the limit will definitely effect turbulence, so it depends on u'r problem physics,

u can try out a run by increasing the viscosity ratio n check the result

hi Rams viscosity ratio is increasing at each iteration. and as you said incresing the limit will definitely effect turbulence. I 'll try to do sensitivity analysis on turbulente parameters. thank you for your advice and help.

do you know what is the criterion convergence that I should use for momentum, k and e?
